Carpe Diem



I'm back at it today after a week off from work...but not before I had a chance to make a few more cards!  Yesterday we celebrated Pat's birthday and Easter and this card was for him.  The sentiment might seem a bit funny, but Pat is going to be going out on his own to purchase a house to either flip or become a long term rental. I'm thrilled for him and wanted to share that in his sentiment for his card.

I went ultra CAS following the current CAS(E) this Sketch.  Had fun using a few inks to create an ombre feel.

Here's a couple pictures from yesterday...we weren't too into picture taking yesterday :)

  5. What a beautiful family, Lynn! Such handsome men with an incredibly beautiful mommy! Your card for Pat is so personal and sweet. Love the ombre arrows and the perfect sentiment for him. Thanks for cheering on our Badgers too. My fingers are crossed, and hopefully we'll see them as National Champions tonight. Have a great week. Bev
